Set Chrome as the Default Browser in Realme ColorOS

Android smartphones from different OEMs usually run on custom UI that tend to change the overall look of the phone. For instance, ColorOS based on Android OS is seen on OPPO and Realme devices whereas Xiaomi phones run on MIUI. On the other hand, OnePlus features OxygenOS that offers a near-stock Android experience with almost no bloatware.

What’s common with custom OS is that they have several native apps pre-installed such as browser, app store, music app, gallery, assistant, and more. Perhaps, if you are not a fan of stock apps and prefer using Google apps or third-party apps instead. In such a case you can simply change the default apps and avoid using the stock apps that can’t be uninstalled, either. Let’s see how you can change the default browser app on Realme devices running on ColorOS.
